gearbox and many spares. Currently running with a Ford 6 cylinder engine, much the same as the AC Ace from 1962/63. Offered with original tools and manuals. An excellent event car that's eligible for the most desirable tours. The Ace-Bristol's high-revving, state-of-the-art power unit could trace its origins back to BMWs advanced pre-war 328 design, which helped make it successful in racing well into the 1960s. Bristol-powered Aces were brilliant in competition, winning three successive SCCA E-Production Championships between 1957 and 1959, followed by D-Production Championship in 1960 and C-Production Championship in 1961. The Ace-Bristol also scored very well at Le Mans, where it finished 2nd in class in 1957 and 1958 and achieved a sterling class victory and 7th overall in 1959. This performance no doubt left an impression on 1959 Le Mans winner Carroll Shelby, who later created his own 289 and 427 Shelby Cobra derivatives based on the classic AC Ace.
